Approaching music with open minds, our singers give
voice to new musical works from our collaborators,
as well as performing works that are rarely heard
in the Bay Area
Working with local composers, we explore a variety of musical styles, including the use of electronic music. We also use music to highlight local issues, such as the struggles of undocumented workers in the US
Using slide shows and other visualizations, our artists play a key role in helping our audiences "see" the music, thus giving audiences deeper insight into the musical works that we perform
Re-imagining the concert-goer's experience by translating sound waves into waves of color, incorporating the use of cell phone apps, or by using OMAX to re-mix what it hears, we use technology to enhance our concerts

Uniting his love of music with his passion for technology, Geoff spent
the first year with Voices of Silicon Valley exploring ways to incorporate
software that reacts to our vocal performance, as well as other visuals that complement it.
Taurin is an electronic musician and sound artist whose work explores the interactive connections between technology and perception. His work incorporates technology to augment our synesthetic experiences of sound and visual art — he composes music you can see and images you can hear.
